TAKE NOTICE 1M Ionia, - - - A Tramp's Eloquent Lecture. A tramp asked for a free lunch in a saloon. The request was granted, and when in the act of drinking the proffered beverage one of tho young men present exclaimed: "Stop; make ua a speech. It is Kor liquor that doesn't unloosen a man's tongue." The tramp hastily swallowed down tho drink, and as tho rich liquor coursed through his blood ho straightened himself and stood before them with a grace and dignity that all his rags and dirt could not obscure. "Gentlemen," ho said, "I look to night at you and myself, and it seems to mo I look upon tho picture of my lost manhood. This bloated face was once as young and handsome as yours. This shambling figure onco walked as proudly as yours, a man in tho world of men. I, too, onco had a home and friends and position. I had a wifo us beautiful as an artist's dream, and I dropped tho priceless pearl of her honor and respect In the wine-cup, and Cleopatra-like, saw It dissolve and quaffed it down in the brimming draught. I had children as sweet and lovely as tho flowers of spring, and saw them fade and dio under the blight ing curse of a drunken father. I had a home where love lit the llame upon the altar and ministered before it. and 1 put out the holy fire, and darkness and desolation reigned in its stead. I had aspirations and ambitions that soared as high as tho morning star and broke 1 and bruised their beautiful wings, and at last strangled them that I might hear their cries no more. Today I am a husband without a wife, a fathor without a child, a tramp with no home to call his own, a man in whom every good impulse is dead. A single bitter word may disquiet an entire family for a whole day. One surly glance casts a gloom over the household, while a smile, like a gleam of sunshine, may light up tho darkest and weariest hours. Like unexpected flowers which spring up along our path, full of freshness, fragrance and beauty, so do kind words, and gentle acts, and sweet dispositions make glad the home where peace and blessing dwell.

THE HOUSEHOLD. ELomt to Manage or. WuihcUy-A Faaoy Louuko Pillow- Pointers For tho Housekeeper. When 1 was ul.l. to work, I did not usually wh.Ii on Monday, fur thore waa the milk, churning and the disorder which otLij comes from devoting Sun day especially to religions duties. I used to mako needful preparations for wash day by roasting meat or chicken, which could he eaten cold for dinuer. Potatoes were prepared for Laking, apples made ready by takiug out their oorea, filling with sugar, placing within dish of porcelain or Liverpool .ware with water in it, and a pudding of somo kind made; thin while waiting for the clothes to boil, and all were placed within tho oven, leaving the top of the fctove clear for the washing. As eurly as possible- the boiler was on, and when tbe water was suiliciently warm some was taken out; the clothes, which had been nicely sorted, were wet thoroughly within the tub, wrung and thrown into the boiler; the water had been prepared by putting in a pint of good soft soap, or hard soap shaved fine, gay, half a bar, also two tablespoonfula of "9 o'clock washing tea, " which I have found gives tho best results of all the wushing preparations I ever tried, and left them to boil for 20 minutes, when I took them out, sudsed and rinsed. Do not condemn this method until you have tried it. I rested or did something else in the moantixne. When the clothes are upon the line, you will havo time to tidy up before laying tho tablo. Let me say that I think tablecloths starched a little keep clean longer. We have been trying pa per napkins laid underneath each plate for every day. Do not raise your hands in horror. They are not bad neatly pinked about the edge, which the chil dren love to do, and they require no washing, which is something to be thought of. When those apples are taken from the oven, place a small lump of butter on each, or pour over them sweet cream. When you wash in this way, you will not feel fagged out and as though every thing in the world wad going to smash. Instead you can read an article or take tho children's stockings to mend while yon go over and see that neighbor in feeble health whom you have long neg lected. Not the least kind of doubt but that both will feel better for your hav ing bestowed the little attention. S. Rosalie fcsiil in Housekeeper. Fancy Lounge Pillow.

New York Teltgram. Pointers For the Housekeeper. After usiiiR a silver fork for fish es pecially anything strong smelling, like herring the odor often clings to the silver, even after washing. To prevent this, directly the fork has been used wash it in warm water, and then stand in a basin of tea leaves for a few min utes. Do not fail to oil the wringer every time you wash. If oiled often, there is less wear on the machinery and less strength is expended by tho operator. To clean the rollers rub them first with a cloth saturated with kerosene oil and follow with soap and water. Always loosen the rollers before putting the wringer away. The white ivory keys of a piano should never be cleaned with water, which discolors them. Instead, they should bo rubbed over with a soft flau nel or piece of silk dipped in oxygenized water, which can be obtained at any chemist's, aud when tho notes are stained or greasy use methylated spirits, gin or diluted whisky.

YOUTHS' DEPARTMENT. A Oeorgrta Doy' Composition - Sarah Ann a fr'ame - Tha Un lucky Dog. The following is a literal copy of a composition written by a Georgia schoolboy, the original of which is now in my posfession. With ail its crude uess the essay shows considerable honest effort to learn aud give facts relating to the subject, "The Pin," which waa se lected by the teacher: THE 8TOKY OP A PIN. The pin In a very tm'ful apparatus invention. It i viry'tisfful to the puoplo of the United fctatea aa well an the pple of other countries of KuroiM. It is uai'd in pinning ureses and other tolloti. The pin in very cheap in thin town and other count leu of Georgia. They ure two or three packs for & cents and Hometinies sold for four or live pucks for 6 cents. Pins were flrnt used in Orf at Britain, and they were first made of wire in 1.140. Brass ones were imported from Frunee Ly Catherine Howard. At first pins were made by filing a point of proper length of wire. In tom part of France the thorns are still used as pins. Buitposing a boy was climbing a fence, and he had accidentally tore his coat, and he was scared his mother would whip him If nhe would we that whole in his coat, but if he had met another companion of his on his way home, and this hoy had a pin, of course the boy would feel Utter and go home on a sly and slip in the Iiouho without seeing his mother. Borne days after this tneooy s mother notice the whole in her son's coat. Of course the boy 's mother ask him about this whole, and the boy tell his mother the truth about this. Of course the boy feels better after this, and after the boy receives a whipping he meets the boy that gave him the pin and thanks him. This is the good of a pin. Sarah Ann's Name. She was a very unhappy little girl, and it was all on account of her name, which was Sarah Ann. None of her be loved princesses in the fairy stories, none of the little girls, good or bad, in any of her books were called Sarah Ann. If Ehe couldn't be called by such lovely names as Goldcnhair, Violet Eyes, Ethelwinda or Gloriaua, mamma might at least have named her Edith or Helen or Maud or Kitty; but Sarah Ann! She didn't care if Sarah and Ann were the names of two dear aunts, they were just as ngly as could bs. It was a rainy day, and she couldn't go out, and that made her all the crosser, so sho just sat by the fire and sulked until the bell rang, and a poor, wet, shivering littlo colored girl came in. She was homely, oh, just h home ly as could be, and she had no stoc kings on, only wornout shoes. Whilemarama was getting ready some of Saiau Ann's old clothes she asked the colored girl her name. "Violet Maud Claria John son," was tho answer. Mamma looked at Sarah Ann u moment, then went on tying the bundle. After Violet Maud Clarissa Johnson, very grateful for the clothes tu:d food, but casting a legretful look at the bright fire, had gone into the wet again. Sarah Ann told mamma that she didn't feel quite so badly about her name as she did before. Then mamma said: "What's in a name? A row tany utm-.r.e wonm smell as sweet. " And Sarali Ann decided that she would be a nice sweet ro-e for tho rest of that day anyway, instead of a horrid prickly burr. Helen Higbie in Chris tian Wotk The Unlucky Dog. Towser was an unlucky dog. He was very black and shaggy and very wise for a dog only 5 years old. Hij mis tress, whose name was LManche, was 9 years old. He was only 1 year old when he was given to her, aud she had taught him many tricks aud some manners too. Of one of his unlucky mishaps I will now tell you. (Jnco when ho was calling with his mistress at a friend's house and was running around tho yard he saw a mouso. Now, Towser loved mice, and so began to chase this one. It ran straight for the well, where its house was, and Towser after it. Tho mouso ran into its hole. Towser jumped after it and fell right into the well. Ho commenced to cry and howl for help. Elauche heard her pet and tried to find him. At last she thought of the well, and, running to it, she saw the poor dog. The bucket was soon let down, and ho very quicnly jumped into it aud was pulled up and saved. Ho had many other mishaps, some worse than this one. Wag not he unlucky?

Why Notf The other day, says The Observer, aa a little Utica girl was being dressed to attend a child's party given at a neigh bor's, her grandmother told her to be very sure and not forget, when she was about to come home, to say to the mother of the little girl giving the party, "Mrs. , I have had a very pleasant time." The child looked up inquiringly and innocently asked, "Well, grandma, won't it do just as well if 1 tell her when I first get there, before I forget H?" In Use.

How many times during the journey of life, when the heart Is bowed down by euro and tho body bending beneath a load of adversity too great to lear, has the friendly grasp, the smiling greet in", the cheery word, dissipated it all and let in the sunny brightness of friendship. How truly some one has written this in the following lines: lletter than granduer. better than gold, Than rank or titles a humlred fold, Is a heart that can feel for his neighbor's woe, And share In his joy with a friendly glow ; With sympathies large enough to enfold All men as brothers, is better than gold." Thirty-five years ago only tho weal thy classes carried life Insurance. To day thtre aro more policies held by tho middle classes than by tho rich; and it is becoming more universal every year. The fraternal societies havo made this possible.. They have done more in tho last twenty years to popularize Insur ance than all tho old lino companies in tho world. Their object Is not specu lation but "home and family" protec tion, and so successful have they been in accomplishing this that under tho system as it now is, no one who is healthy need leave his family in want.
